Questions before Moving To Rockledge
Posted in the Cocoa Beach Forum
#1 Apr 16, 2013
I am thinking about moving to Rockledge from Tennessee but do not know much about the area other than what I have researched. I have read great things about the city, the people and the schools but I have not spoken one on one with any actual residents. How are the employment rates, what are some parents opinions on the school systems, extra carricular activites for the children, family friendly activities?

This place sucks. You're thinking about moving to the abandoned space coast where thousands and thousands of people lost their job at NASA due to the space program being shut down. Unemployment rates are horrible here. Businesses come and go like dirty underwear. The schools suck, and the school board actually just processed the closing of three schools due to lack of money. Thankfully, there's a large homeschooling population though. There's lots of extracurricular activities for the kids (softball, baseball, soccer, cheer leading, gymnastics, etc.), but good luck affording them because you won't be able to find a job. For family fun, the beach is an obvious one. There's also lots of parks around here. Fishing and kayaking are always nice, and of course there's the theme parks in Orlando about 45 minutes away. But again, good luck affording them.

Wow, negative Nancy cry us how you really feel. Listen, many states are struggling . This is a beautiful city with very low crime. There are many things to do on the Space Coast. We have the beach, the intercostal waterways, sports complexes, and many Orlando attractions which is a short drive from Brevard county. Your child's education will be fine if you as a parent are involved, and through the years my son has had some fantastic teachers. Don't let one persons opinion sway you until you have done your research. Rockledge is a great place to raise children .
